Education department is an integral and indispensable part of Gallery of Modern Art in Hradec Králové.

Gallery education department regularly prepares programmes for temporary exhibitions and permanent exhibitions for wide age range. School groups of kids, pupils and students are the largest group of participants. All these age groups find a varied offer that meets their aims and requirements. Programmes are flexible in combination and adaptable to needs of participants. Programmes are designed in connection with System of Curricular Documents to support all key competencies in the process of education.

The focus of all activities run by education department is to open the gallery to everyone, to visitors since they are children, to perceive it as a natural place for meeting, learning, communication, cooperation, and creation.

Educational activities give the opportunity for the participants to develop art appreciation, aesthetic values, and own reflection.

Educators regularly organize events that can either be short- term (one- day workshops) or long-term (five-day events).

Education department focuses on collaboration with university students (their support in teacher training) and on cooperation of kids and their parents. Educators are ready to engage seniors through lectures and creative workshops.

Due to flexible approach of gallery educators disabled visitors can take part in programmes according to their requirements and needs and enjoy art like all.
